X-clusive: New Blur Material “Nasty, Dirty, Filthy”

Blur (and now Wigwam) bassist Alex James has been speaking to Xfm about the prospect of a new Blur album, which – if the most recent writing sessions are anything to go by – will be a rather nasty affair.

Speaking to Lucio on the Xfm Drivetime Show, Alex explained that despite Blur singer Damon Albarn’s recent success with Gorillaz, the band did recently get together and will be recording a new album.

“Yeah I think we are,” Alex confirmed, “We all got together before Christmas. Damon, Dave and I and we were making the most nasty, dirty, filthy rock music I think we’ve ever made… It was great.”

“And then Damon’s been making his records, I’ve been busy with Wigwam and Dave’s got this multi media empire going on, but I think there’s plans to reconvene  really soon, I think probably towards the end of the year.”

As for the style of the album, Alex reckons that the noisy, aggressive music they’ve been working on may well set the tone for the whole new album.

“It seems to be going like that,” he continued, “I mean, you never know what a record’s gonna sound like till you’ve finished recording it, but it was sounding that way.

“The Foo Fighters are gonna wet their pants when they hear it.”
